NOTE Encryption protects sensitive data for an unprotected medium. In today’s interconnected world, encryption is widely used because it clearly meets the criteria for which it was designed: encryption protects sensitive data passing through the unprotected Internet. Many security professionals have extensive experience in the network security realm and a strong understanding of cryptography. This is one reason encryption is so popular today. Databases and database security are significantly different from networks and network security.
As you can see in Figure 1-1 for a Sales History (SH) schema, you should not allow application users to connect to the database by way of the SH schema. If you do, nothing in the database will prevent users from mutilating the data structures and basically having their way with everything contained within the SH. Obviously, your application would need to provide some sort of security, but even with some security present, allowing user to access the database via the schema is a bad idea. User Access Accounts User access accounts are the schemas in which end users connect to the database.
Security in layers has an analogous benefit. A removal of one layer—say, by compromise—does not expose the entire system. When you look at how to apply security, you want to look at incorporating multiple layers whenever it makes sense to do so. There is no such thing as being too secure (which should not be confused with too cumbersome a security implementation to be usable). Of all the things that compete with a security implementation, other security implementations should not be one of them.
